Soros Doubling Down Against #Stocks

News
A bullish message of the market, focused bull opportunities in the S&P 500 (large cap stocks), Russell 2000 (small cap stocks), and Nasdaq 100 (technology stocks) and a bull phase in sentiment, strongly advises against doubling down against the stock market rally. While Soros's use of puts limits his downside risk, the added element of time decay places a greater emphasis on timing than simply purchasing the underlying ETF.

Successful bets against stocks, whether execute by famous or unknown investors, requires focused bear opportunities in the S&P 500, Russell 2000, and Nasdaq 100 and a bear phase in sentiment.  The majority follows experts like Soros more than the message of the market.

Headline: Billionaire Soros' namesake fund doubled down against the S&P 500

George Soros’ family-office hedge fund, Soros Fund Management, increased its bearish bet on the stock market.

During the second quarter, Soros bought put options on just over 1.9 million shares on the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), making it so he owns puts on just over 4 million shares of the exchange-traded fund. It’s his fund’s biggest holding in the filing too.
